Healthy Cheesecake Swirl Brownies
These Cheesecake Swirl Brownies are THE fudgiest, most dense, and chocolatey brownies that will ever meet your face… oh, and they’re gluten free, sugar free, high fiber, and high protein too!
Can I tell you something? These fudgy squares of goodness are made with a secret ingredient. But don’t worry, you’d never know it’s there… these are the best. brownies. ever.
BECAUSE THEY’RE SWIRLED WITH CHEESECAKE.
These are seriously delicious. I finished the entire batch in two days. Like, I had these brownies for dessert (obviously), midday snacks, midmorning snacks, aaaaand breakfast. Yes, breakfast.
When I told my friend I ate brownies for breakfast, she thought I was insane. But that’s because she doesn’t have a sweet tooth like
me us 😉
Most people can’t handle such decadence in the morning, but I sure can. When I was younger I used to eat chocolate bars on my way to school, so I’m used to it I guess.
I mean, brownies for breakfast?? HELL YES. WHO’S WITH ME?!

- 260g (one 15.5oz can) Black Beans
- 175g (~1¼ cups) Fresh Blueberries
- ⅓ cup Brewed Coffee (cooled to room temp)
- 1 tbs Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp Liquid Stevia Extract
- 96g (½ cup) Granulated Erythritol
- 60g (¾ cup) Unsweetened Natural Cocoa Powder
- 34g (¼ cup) Sweet White Sorghum Flour
- 28g (¼ cup) Ground Flaxseed
- 1½ tsp Double Acting Baking Powder
- ¼ tsp Baking Soda
- ¼ tsp Salt
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line an 8x8” brownie pan with parchment paper.
Drain the can of black beans and pour the beans into a sieve. Rinse well and drain off the excess water.
In a blender (I used my NutriBullet), add the black beans, blueberries, coffee, vanilla extract, and stevia extract. Purée until completely smooth.
In a large bowl, whisk together the erythritol, cocoa powder, sorghum flour, flaxseed, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
For the Cheesecake Swirl- In a small bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, stevia extract, and vanilla paste.
Pour the blender mixture (scrape out as much as you can!) into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until completely even. Scoop the mixture into the prepared pan and spread it out. Scoop spoonfuls of the cheesecake swirl over the batter and swirl in with a butter knife.
Bake for ~43 minutes. Let cool completely, then cover and refrigerate overnight. Slice into 9 squares. Serve and enjoy! Store in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Feel free to mix in ½ cup of No-Sugar-Added Chocolate Chips for some extra chocolate goodness and texture!
